5 out of 5 eggsDon't beleive the negative reviews

Pros: Features. I LOVE THIS MOTHERBOARD!!! ROG gold Chokes. Both NIC cards are intel controllers. Sound card is grounded through seperate PCB channels. Supports 4-way SLI. Tons of expansion slots. XMP and TPU switches are actually working. Regular BIOS updates. Stable. Extra heat sinks over the Z97 Pro for better stability. FEATURES!!! DID I SAY FEATURES!!!! Oh and 2 USB 3.0 headers.

I could go on and on. I work in a PC shop where we build computers all day and every customer I've sold this motherboard loves it. I own it and a friend of mine also owns this one. I use the WLC and NFC as well. My s6 has bother features so it comes in handy.

There is a lot of complaints of stability issues. I have had this board since before day 1. Back when the 4770k was still out and the 4790k was on its way. I got this board because it was rated the best Z97 board by a few and probably bias review sites. I do not regret this. I will say that it did have some issues with the first few BIOS revisions but after the 3rd one I have had literally nothing wrong.

I run 2 way SLI with 980ti's on this board. I run the 4790k at 4.8MHZ. I am running 16GB XMP 2133 CL8 dominators on this board. I have both USB 3.0 headers occupied. I have all the 4 pin fan headers used. I have 2 SSDs, 2 HDDS, and a Blu Ray reader/writer in use. There are not too many boards that this stable. But to run this stable when I have tons of stuff installed is just amazing. It also has ran this stable since June of last year. Did I mention my 980ti's are OC at 1395mhz as well? To have this much extra voltage added and have no issues what so ever. Is just fantastic to me.

Do not let other reviews scare you. Asus still makes the best boards. This board, is their BEST Z97 board by far. I've sold plenty of ROG boards and TUF boards on this chipset to be able to say STAY FAR FAR AWAY FROM THEM. Signature series rocks it out this time. THANK YOU ASUS FOR BEING AMAZING I LOVE YOU MARRY ME PLEASE!!!

Cons: No reset CMOS switch on the outside of the motherboard. (On the back panel.) Supports 4 way SLI but only 3 way Crossfire X. I am running 2-way SLI on the board but still I would consider that a con. There is a reset switch on the actual board itself so I can use it that way but I love being able to clear from the back panel because I do a lot of overclocking. For a board this expensive it would have been nice to see extra power to the PCI Express channels. Or even an PLX or PEX chip for additional lanes. I understand the Work Station series have them but honestly this board is too close in features to the Z97 Pro. It's a NIC card away. Having the PLX or PEX chip would justify the price a little more. But hey, on maxwell GPUs you can run a GTX 980 on 4x PCIe 3.0 and still not have any frame drops so who really needs it?

Other Thoughts: This board also looks amazing. I love the new color scheme ASUS went with. I will be upgrading to Z170 and getting another Deluxe Board. I am formally a TUF series only kinda guy and I'm never looking back. I had a lot of issues with the Z77 Sabertooth and the Z87 was a little better but still not perfect. This board, is perfect.

5 out of 5 eggsDat mobo tho...

Pros: Best motherboard I've ever had! Just about everything one could ever need.

Cons: USB 3.0 slots didn't work until I installed the driver software (expected I guess). Also had an issue with drives randomly disappearing. I think I induced this and it only happened once or twice after plugging in an external hard drive while under heavy load. If it's an issue for you run a BIOS update and it SHOULD fix it.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Board!

Pros: 16 phase power
M.2 support
Great looking board
Lots of SATA
Sata Express
Solid overclocker!
The best part about this board... Amazing Fan control .. True PWM on ALL fan headers..

Cons: Auto overclock not even close to stable. set my 4790K @ 4.9ghz 1.375V... Found true stability manually.. 4.8ghz @ 1.31V. Not a true con but the board has a ton of features which can make bios settings a little cumbersome. Then again.. it's nice to have all the extras!

Other Thoughts: All boards have their issues and I spent a long time researching what I wanted out of my board. Fan control was a huge must for me and Asus pretty much owns the best fan control I have ever used. My 4790K runs great at 4.8ghz using a Phanteks cooler. The M.2 slot is only an X2 so I will be using an adapter card for x4 support of my Samsung SM951. I think this board looks MUCH better than the X87 Pro it replaced. Make sure you do a bios update as your first step when it boots. As for ppl having issues getting things to boot I had to play with settings to Ensure UEFI was booting. I also tried hooking the SATA ports up to match how I had them on my Z87 and found I was connecting my OS drive to a different controller.. this of course prevented my UEFI OS from booting. So far I have not had any of the problems the below reviewers have mentioned. Looking at how old their reviews are I can only assume BIOS revisions have resolved some of the issues. I got my board locally and it had 1008 bios version.. I updated to 2205 so it was pretty out dated.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board NO REAL ISSUES

Pros: very very feature rich board. This is my 3rd Z97 board. The previous board i owned was a gigabyte z97 SOC FORCE. Ive seen alot of people give this board terrible reviews but honestly i just think its ignorance of knowing how to properly set it up. I had one issue when i got it and it was not being able to boot into windows because the drives i had were setup for my previous board and windows detected it was a new board but after changing the sata cables to different ports i got a successful boot. all i had to do was install the software cd that came with the board. This is a very high quality board and even though i didnt purchase mine through newegg its still the same hardware no ifs ands or buts.

Cons: none yet very good software for overclocking and wifi/networking

Other Thoughts: This is the best board ive owned yet and im extremely satisfied

Core i5 4690k @4.3 MHZ
2 EVGA GTX 970 ssc in SLI 151 FPS

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It's an impressive board, with lots of the features I was looking for. I have wanted a system with plenty of disk storage and speed for a long time.

Because of limited money I have often had to make due with old or used computers and struggle just to keep up with the new software coming out.

This new system should be usable for at least 7 or 8 years and will be the cornerstone of my network.

Cons: Asus assumes far too much; in their manual that comes with the motherboard. I've been working slowly over two weeks(time permitting) to get the system to boot up.

A better manual would have helped greatly as I've made a number of errors while assembling everything. Video card has aux power firmly in place and reseated all the ram now.

Close to booting but I am still having trouble; the POST display stops with A2 now and I have no idea what that is. I will next try using the cpu's builtin video, in hopes of at least getting something working.

Other Thoughts: Not ready to give up yet; been building this computer slowly for over a year now.

I'm tackling the issues I'm having with it slowly and hopefully it won't be long before the computer is running.

4 out of 5 eggsGood motherboard

Pros: easily installed. It was nice that zip ties were included and the different screws were in separate bags.

Easy getting into BIOS and inserting an i7 processor and memory.

Cons: I wouldn't use the SATA cables that are included. They are very stiff to use.

2 out of 5 eggsHard Drive issues

Pros: It was pretty. Liked the UEFI bios, somewhat.

Cons: I had issues with power and sleep and drives. During a wake operation or a boot I would not always see all my drives. Sometimes they would show up later, sometimes not. Tested the other sata controller, no luck. Updated firmware a couple times, played the update your driver game, etc. Never resolved the issue and RMA'd to Asus. Just got a response that I bent the pins and they'd like to charge me $150 for a repair having nothing to do with my RMA. Sooooo, going to try and find a board without these issues. I'm not even willing to argue with them over the diagnosis at this point. Sick of the board and the support.

Other Thoughts: I found their Asus utility somewhat problematic as it interfered with Windows default apps for the same purpose.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsNot Able To Get in to Bios

Pros: not sure if any..

Cons: Tried 5 different keyboards to get in to BIOS, pressed DEL or F2 at POST, will skip and go to the next screen and then shutdown in 15 seconds. Attempted to flash bios with USB but will not work. Played with it for 3 days and gave up. RMA'ed...
Got the second board and SATA port and FAN issues.
When computer idles fans are working normal, as soon as you start typing or browse the web, fans take off like crazy, annoying. Fans are set to normal in bios. Gave up with this board...

Other Thoughts: Called Asus, they hung up on me. Went with ASRock board and no regrets, everything works as it should. Sucks that Asus Quality went down the drain.. Used their boards with over 10 years..
